This topic provides information about how to create a new message classification. For more information about message classifications, see Understanding Message Classifications.

CautionCaution:
Before you create or modify message classifications in your production environment, we recommend that you use a test environment to understand how message classifications work. Before you modify message classifications, test them in a production environment.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Message classifications" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

noteNote:
You can't use the Exchange Management Console to create a message classification.

To create a new message classification instance, you must use the New-MessageClassification cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell. The New-MessageClassification cmdlet requires four parameters to create a new message classification:

  • DisplayName

  • Locale

  • Name

  • SenderDescription

You should also consider setting a value for the optional RecipientDescription parameter so that recipients are provided with a detailed description about the intent of the classification and how they should handle the message.

This example creates a new message classification with only the required classification parameters:

New-MessageClassification -Name NewMessageClassification -DisplayName "New Message Classification" -SenderDescription "This is the description that explains to the sender when to use this classification" -Locale en-EN

This example creates a new message classification that includes the RecipientDescription parameter with the required classification parameters:

New-MessageClassification -Name NewMessageClassification -DisplayName "New Message Classification" -SenderDescription "This is the description that explains to the sender when to use this classification" -RecipientDescription "This is the description that explains to the recipient the intent of the classification and how they should handle the message" -Locale en-EN
